Sleep Better With Cooling & Heating Mattress Pad

Do you sleep hot or cold?

Do you wake up in a sweat or shivering.

Do you toss and turn because your body just can’t find the right temperature.

If so then this message is just for you. Here’s why…

In this post I’m reviewing the Chilipad Sleep System

I’m Laura Maynard and I’m a fan of sleep Tech according to a totally Dependable poll.

I once saw on Reddit the average person cumulatively spends more than 229,961 hours in bed over a lifetime.

So it makes sense to try to maximize the comfort of those hours or probably more accurately about 8  hours a day.

Now, that’s why I was excited when I found out about this cooling bed mattress topper.

I’ve been keeping an eye on one of these babies for suite awhile now.

It claimed to address my biggest problem while sleeping.

You see I hate sleeping hot but I love my weighted blanket too.

The idea is relatively simple create a device that can heat or cool water then circulate that water through a mattress pad to heat or cool your sleeping area to your desired Comfort temperature.

It’s definitely a simple idea but complicated to do properly the way that the chili pad does.

It is through a two-part system comprised of the control unit and the hydronic pad.

Starting at just $499 the control box measures about 9. inches long 10.5 inches wide and 7.5 inches high with an interior 390 millilitres water reservoir.

It uses a reversible heat pump to heat or cool that water between 55 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

Then it circulates it through the hydronic pad.

It comes with a remote control so that the control unit doesn’t have to be immediately accessible after your installation and it’s designed to automatically protect itself by shutting off should the reservoir fall below a safe operating level.

The hydronic pad comes in sizes from Queen all the way up to California king in both single system or dual zone.

It uses several meters of 3.2 millimeter silicone tubing integrated into the pad to flow the water through the entire surface.

It has an 8-foot tail for connecting the hydronic pad to the cube and the pad is machine washable and uses polyfill so that you can place your fitted sheet directly over the pad.

Using the chilly pad starts by stripping your bed so that you can lay the pad on the mattress.

There is an elastic band attached to the pad that secures it to the mattress so that it doesn’t slide out of position. Pretty much like any standard mattress pad protector, electric blanket system.

You can position the tail at the head or the foot of your bed, depending on where you want to house the control unit.

Now speaking of the control unit, you’ll need a flat surface on which to place it.

The spot needs to have two feet of uninterrupted airflow on all sides as the system going to need that airflow to properly operate the heat pump.

Once you’ve got a location for the cube connect it to the tail from the hydronic pad then plug the it into a power outlet.

Unscrew the cap of the water reservoir, which should always be facing upwards and fill it with distilled water.

Now distilled is optional in the manual. But for me any water circulation device should avoid regular or softened water because that will cause mineral build up over time.

This is tech that we want to be using for years if not decades, so let’s treat it right.

After filling the tank, turn it on and set the temp to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

As the water circulates through the tubes in the hydronic pad the water level in the reservoir will drop.

Go ahead and refill it until it’s stabilizes then cap the tank.

While the pad is still uncovered go ahead and make sure that it reaches your desired temperature testing both the heating and cooling functions.

If everything checks out you can redress your bed minus old pad and you’ve just finished installation and you are now good to go.

But the question is, how does it feel.

In a word Heavenly.

Now, I’ve never had an experience where the bed kept me at my perfect sleeping temperature and it is so much better than what I’ve done in the past.

I love sleeping cold. I keep my windows open in the winter. I blow fans on myself in the summer, but that always causes discomfort because no matter how cool I make my room.

I’m still building up heat in my mattress, and that causes me to toss and turn.

With the chiliy pad and after a few nights to dial it in I was able to sleep all through the night waking up in the same position that I was in when I went to bed.

Not only that but cooling just the bed is far more energy efficient than trying to cool the entire room or the entire house.

So this is one of those sleep technologies that will spoil you for regular mattresses because it is just so much more comfortable.

But yet because the modular design of the chili pad allows you to multi-zone your bed.

That means that if you share it with a partner they can set their side of the bed at a different temperature than your side.

You can have your 55-degree igloo while they enjoy sleeping on a warm 110 degree beach .

Now, it should be noted that while the cube can heat or cool the water between 55 and 110 Fahrenheit that’s not necessarily going to be the temperature of the pad itself.

Those pesky laws of thermodynamics mean that the temperature of the room the mattress your body and the thermal conductivity of your bedding will all affect the temperature that you feel.

For me setting the temp to 60 meant my bed stayed at about 72 degrees, which was perfect. But that’s just me.

I was really impressed by the chili Pad, but that’s not to say that it’s for everybody.

If you don’t currently have heat-related sleeping issues, then you Might not fully appreciate the chili pad.

Also if you’re an extra light sleeper the pump and fan could potentially wake you.

Barring that, the Chilipad sleep system is a fantastic piece of tech that I recommend for anybody who thinks that they can get a better night’s sleep with better heat management.

Best Weighted Blankets 2020 – Our Top 5 Picks!

Hey guys, Laura here from Sleep Tech Gure.

So lately weighted blankets have become a very hot ticket item and you might be thinking that they all look the same, they all must be the same.

But you know what… you’re wrong.

In fact, there are five weighted blankets I think really Stand Out Among the rest.

So I want to talk about my top 5 picks and what you should look for in a weighted blanket.

Let’s get started.

So there are a lot of things to think about when you’re looking for a weighted blanket such as:

  • size
  • breathability
  • weights
  • or even cover option

but there’s really not one weighted blanket that fits all.

That’s why I pick five different weighted blankets. They’re a good fit for different types of people.

So want to go through each one one by one and talk about who the best fit.

We’re going to start off with the Luna.

So Luna weighted blanket is all about options.

And as I said, one of the main things in terms of options you’re looking for is weight options and Luna has so many.

Finding that right weight for you with way to blanket is usually around 10% of your body weight.

And I don’t pretty much whatever weight you are. You should be able to find what you’re looking for with a Luna.

You have

  • 5 pounds
  • 7 pounds
  • 10 pounds
  • 12 pounds
  • 15 pounds
  • 17 pounds
  • 20 pounds
  • 22 pounds
  • and 25 pounds.

That is a lot more options you find with other Weighted blanket companies.

You also going to have multiple size options multiple color options and also some cover options as well.

So if you’re trying to find that exact weight and looking for you should find it with the Luna.

So next up we have the gravity blanket.

One of the most popular weighted blankets on the market.

If you’ve you spend much time online you probably going to come across the gravity blanket, but what makes it so special.

Well first off I’m a big fan of the weight of blankets cover.

So the cover has a really nice kind of almost mink equality, which is a soft polyester fabric so very fuzzy very warm and insulating as well.

And a lot of people want weighted blanket to give them that deep tissue pressure.

But you also want some extra warmth to keep you warm at night.

The gravity blanket should also work for you.

It also comes in a throw size.

So it’s more fit to the size of your body not the size of your bed.

You get more of that cocooning effect.

It also comes in three weight options;

  • 15 pounds
  • 20
  • and 25 pounds

and a couple color options as well.

So overall very high quality, very warm and very effective weighted blanket.

Moving on we have the luxome weighted blankets.

Now, I just talked about finding a weighted blanket to keep you nice and warm at night.

But what about those of you who sleep hot?

What should you be looking for?

Well, you should definitely take a look at the Luxome cooling weighted blankets.

You have two main options with their cooling weighted blanks.

They do one with a separate bamboo duvet cover or one with an integrated bamboo cover.

Now, what that’s going to do is going help with heat dissipation and Wick away moisture.

But for those who want to try something else they do have a couple other blanket options and so other cover options as well.

Next up we have the honey bird weighted blankets.

Now another thing you want to think about you’re looking for in a weighted blanket is weight distribution.

Good weight distribution to be a specific.

So basically how evenly is the weight of the weighted blanket dispersed across your body.

Is it kind of patchy where you have like some dead spots and heavier spots or is it nice and even.

Now in that respect the honey bird is one of the best that I’ve come across.

Their good weight distribution has these smaller squares and it’s grating.

So I’m not feeling any dead spots my body with a really good even wait on every part of my body.

It also comes in a throw size.

So again, very good for that cocooning effect and fits the size of your body and not the size of your bed.

And lastly honey bird comes a great duvet cover.

It’s nice and fuzzy on top and cool on the bottom.

So you can flip it over and have one for those colder nights and flip it over and have one for those warmer nights.

Last up we have the Bearaby Napper weighted blanket.

Now as I talked about before a lot of weighted blankets do look the same. Seem to give you that similar experience.

They also have a very similar design with a gridded stitching and inside some heavier fill like glass beads or some poly pellets.

But that’s not what you get with the bearaby Napper.

The bearaby Napper is 100% cotton and it’s woven back and forth upon itself almost like an Afghan.

And with that you had these kind of larger holes in the weighted blanket, a lot of room for air flow a very good match for hot sleepers.

It’s a very unique weighted to blanket. It has almost this kind of hugging quality to it too.

So it hugs your Body give you some pressure on the sides as well and just some good overall weight.

So in the end it is a very unique weighted blanket a very comfortable blanket and a very effective weighted blanket.

Hope this has helped you out on some insight on weighted blankets and what to look for in your next or new one.

How Business Travelers Stay Healthy

It’s much easier to stay healthy at home than on the road.  Travel alters your daily routine of sleep, diet, exercise and environment.  When this happens your body can cease to function properly and this can lead to insomnia, upset stomachs, allergies and emotional stress.  But there are many ways to stay healthy while traveling.

Food can be a leading cause of illness when traveling, especially in foreign countries.

Avoid eating heavily. You will be subjected to new and possibly exotic foods so remember all things in moderation.

You don’t pig out on junk food at the office do you? Substitute fruit or possibly a health bar.  Fruit that you peel is probably safer.  Know the difference between hunger and boredom.  It’s best to eat before a long flight.

Water can also cause problems.  Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration but make sure the water is safe.  When in doubt, drink bottled water and avoid ice in drinks.  Put an extra bottle of water in your bag to carry aboard the plane.

Avoid alcohol and caffeine.  Both are diuretics and will keep you going to the bathroom unnecessarily.  Remember, one drink in the air can act like two on the ground.  If you must attend a gathering at the bar, never be the last to leave.

Get plenty of rest and sleep.  Make sure your hotel room is at least two floors away from all the parties.  This avoids the noise and the temptation.  Also, request a room away from the elevators and ice machine.

Ice machines vibrate and this filters through to adjacent rooms.  It’s wise to clear a path from your bed to the bathroom before you turn out the light.  It will save a possible “trip” you didn’t want to take.

Make time for exercise.  A healthy traveler is a more fit and productive traveler.  Most hotels have health spas and many great business contacts are made there.

If you have back problems, two small suitcases with wheels are better than one large one.

Better yet, call a porter.

Alleviate jetlag by tricking your body into adapting to the new time zone.  Go to bed when the natives go to bed – even if it’s noon at home.

Wash your hands frequently and avoid any co-worker who is sick.

If you do get sick, don’t panic.  Rest, take your medications and it will likely pass in a day or two.  Take time to relax and read or watch an in-room movie.  Your co-workers will appreciate your not spreading any illness to them.
